Kit developed with top pro ATV riders

After racking up victories and podium results in World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) ATV competitions and punctuated by the first Can-Am DS 450 Pro win in AMA ATV Motocross racing, the Holz Racing Products DS 450 +2 Long Travel Front A-Arm Kit is now available for all DS450 owners.

The kit was developed in conjunction with top Motoworks riders like Josh Frederick, Chad Weinen and John Natalie, who put it to the test in some of the most demanding racing environments in North America.

High quality tig-welded chromoly steel creates the backbone of the long travel A-arms. Mated with heavy-duty tie rods and new rod ends, the kit utilizes the stock pivot bushings and ball joints and features adjustable camber.

“We’ve spent a considerable amount of time working with the Motoworks riders in developing this suspension package,” says Mark Holz, owner and head engineer at Holz Racing Products. “The wider stance, increased wheel base, and more suspension travel this package delivers dramatically improves the handling and stability of the DS 450.”

Due to the increased width and travel of the +2 Long Travel Kit, stock DS 450 shocks will not work with the Holz Kit. For this reason, Hosz has developed a custom tuned FOX Float EvolX package for the Holz Long Travel D S450 Kit. Featuring dual speed compression damping and a springless design, the advanced EvolX shocks are lighter than stock and offer virtually unlimited tuning capabilities.

The Holz Racing DS450 +2 Long Travel Front A-Arm Kit is in stock and ready to ship. For more details visit the Holz Racing website and click on the ATV section. The DS 450 +2 Long Travel Kit has an MSRP of $999.00. To complete the package, ask about the FOX EvolX Shock Package for the DS 450 +2 Kit. Pricing for the custom-tuned EvolX shocks starts at $1,495 (Part For technical assistance, call 360-398-7006.
